Ping to today’s severe weather thread.

This watch has the same probabilities as yesterday’s PDS watch in NE Texas.

And it’s only 11:15 local. Gonna be a long, long day.

Yesterday's first PDS watch was issued at 2pm local.

This one was issued nearly three hours earlier.

Make ya wonder what it will be like further east in Northern Alabama and Georgia when this severe weather scenario has the full afternoon heating keeping it cooking along.

HSV has another tornado warning and is under a severe flash flooding warning. Schools are closing. This is the worst weather I can remember and I have lived here since 1966.

From Wiki:

Terminal velocity of hail, or the speed at which hail is falling when it strikes the ground, varies by the diameter of the hail stones. A hail stone the size of 8 centimetres (3.1 in) in diameter fall at a rate of 48 metres per second (110 mph).

WOW. That means that the updrafts are 110mph+...probably much more + !! Thats SOME energy!

Some describe the appearance of the larger of these super cell thunderstorms as a mushroom cloud of an atomic explosion. But if they knew the energy involved, they’d know how close their description really is.

Tornado watch just issued for Mid-Atlantic, Central NC, VA and parts of WV and MD up to PA border.

Fortunately, it's not a PDS watch like we had a few days ago with all of those horrific storms in NC.

Our local meteorologist, Jym Ganahl, in Columbus, Ohio, said yesterday that the storms moving in tonight have the same factors as the storms that produced the deadly F5 Xenia tornado in 1974.

I live in NE Mississippi near the confluence of MS/Tn/Al. Since this morning at 3am we've had six Tornado warnings and numerous Thunderstorm warnings. We also are in a high flash flood area. Last year this same time (May 1) we had the town flooded out and tornadoes damaging a bunch of property.

Getting pretty dark here in Knoxville. They have school closings in the area. I can’t think of anytime schools have closed due to predicted non-winter storms.

Live in NE Alabama near Georgia. We had a huge wind even at 6-7 a.m. this morning. Hundreds of trees down, power lines, houses damaged, in our community. I think a small tornado went through. The trees look twisted and a lot were topped off. Our road is covered with power lines. We got power back on our end of the road at 2 pm. Lost it around 7 this morning. Our church had several huge trees get knocked down. Just heard on Channel 33/40 that a large church in Cullman, AL was totally destroyed eariler. Going to be an exciting night.

This will likely be one of the all-time worst tornado outbreaks;

Too much to follow; something like at least 6-8 confirmed tornadoes on the ground at any one time.

James Spann, the 33/40 weather guy, who has been around here for 32 years or more, said earlier that in all that time, this is one of 3 or 4 times that it is going to be DANGEROUS, very dangerous conditions and possible storms. He said this could be bad.

The Chattanooga/Cleveland area of Tennessee got hit pretty hard this morning around 9:30 or 10 AM. Nasty winds, took down a couple of big trees in the neighborhood, dropped a big branch from one of my pines, took down a 7 foot Maple (snapped it off at the base), and tore off the aluminum facia from the gable at one end of my house. One piece was hanging, one was in the back yard, and I have no idea where the wind took the rest. More nasty weather on the way.

The Chattanooga Electric Power Board had over 70,000 customers without power today, and with this evening’s storms and potential tornadoes, I’m sure that they’ll have more.
